What is the Foundation?

If you have an idea for a project which will develop your skills and benefit others, the Leeds for Life Foundation could help with a cash grant to make it happen. With joint funding from the Alumni Footsteps Fund and the Santander Group, the Foundation has been set up to help fund projects that reflect the enthusiasm, creativity and initiative of our students. You might want to seek out new challenges, to experience new environments and cultures, and make a positive difference to the lives of other people. The Foundation would especially welcome applications from students initiating new projects.
